Background Investigation

Background Investigation

Background investigations can provide an in-depth history or insight into a subject’s known or unknown histories. Criminal background investigations, hidden or past assets, financial data, workers' compensation, employment background investigation, police records, civil history, and other public records are just the beginning of a background investigation.

Records available to us, as private investigators, are not the same set of records that law enforcement uses. Private investigators are not limited like police agencies when conducting background searches. If we conduct an online investigation or a background check we can compile more complete and accurate records than many government agencies, such as FBI or security background investigations for other law enforcement purposes.
